How about a Trick and a Treat this Halloween. While the gorgeous sushi selection you see above might look like it came from your favorite restaurant, it actually comes from award winning Chefs Snap, Crackle and Pop. Kids love the surprise when you calm their fears of eating raw fish for dinner with a sweet, chewy treat made with Kellogg’s Rice Krispies and Fruit Roll Ups. No, we’re not suggesting you serve these for dinnner, but they are really fun to serve your little Goblins after dinner or at a Halloween party.
3 Tablespoons Butter
6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1 10 ounce bag Marshmallows
1 Box Fruit Roll Ups
Assorted Gummy Candy or Chocolate
Chocolate Syrup, Nutella, Whipped Cream (optional)
Make treats according to directions. If the box doesn’t provide a recipe, here is the link to the original Rice Krispies Treat recipe. (I used the pumpkin spice marshmallows that are now available). While the Rice Krispies mix is still warm, unroll a Fruit Roll and place the rice mix into the middle of the roll. You can use any type of candy for extra “filling.” For this roll, I used gummy worms and JuJu Fish. Twizzlers also work really well (they mimic the crab sticks found in California Rolls). Once you mold the rice mixture and candy, roll the Fruit Roll up and tuck in the sides. Cut the roll into even sushi pieces.
For some finishing touches, I added “soy sauce” (chocolate syrup) and “wasabi” (green whipped cream). I guarantee this Halloween snack will be a hit, especially for the kids who won’t eat sushi.
